Today was eclectic like every day on the farm. We split our time between moving pigs with a pig board (harder than it looks) into pens to be weighed, helping to build pathways and meeting houses for camp fires and moving families of ducks.
We are learning about the life cycle of a farm animal. We are growing in understanding and respect for their roles in our diets – for some of us, it has been hard to make the connection between animals we see and animals we eat but we are getting there.
And those other paths? Our friendships have become deeper and we are perhaps are not all heading in the directions we assumed. We are lifting our eyes, looking beyond our small part of a big city and seeing new ways of living. Older children always said to us that Wick Court Farm week is the best week of primary school – they were right! We have one more day left.
